A'of oner and I cnnnot bear ihe idea of giv- ing up the field so. I have, however, felt it to be my duty, to give a plain statement f fucts in the case. I suppoae there will be several families out here this spring, bringing their slaves with them. That is to bu the policy. They will not at first bring slaves herein large numbers, as that would arouse the Mispicions of tlie Mexicans, but families will move in bringing tlu'ir with them-, thus gradually fumiliarizing them with the thing, iitnl paving the way ior Inrgcr im- portnlions. The fact I do not believe this territory will ever be a free state by (lie action of its population, unless there should be a immigration from the north. Unless not thought it proper to deny the soft fret-men of the north will plant themselves peach me nt, for we arc pretty much in the j upon the broad phttfonn of no more slave and stand by it, in my humble jud; condition of Ilic boy. when asked if be could read lie didn't had nev- er 4-imV But an vend prominent citizens been brought ioto difficulty, in consc- queaioe giving credit to the M'itconsin's Imax, we may as slate, that however vorthjr the Mormons aaay be, never had permnal with t'le members of that church, clerical or Uieai.

It is of no use longer to shut our to the light because it is painlul. The question of slavery 1ms ceased to be one in relation to the negro race, though lliat was mough to invest it with infinite interest.
